    Remove match cuts without losing markers?

    Before adding any video to the timeline, I added a song track and put 6 markers at the key points. Then I added video clips, trimmed them, moved them around, etc. A few moments ago, I noticed that the song was cut at each marker -- something I never intentionally did. I found the command to remove match cuts, but that causes most of the markers (5 of 6; MC is mocking me) to disappear. The markers were set to identify thematic transitions in the music and not as cut points. It IS feasible in THIS instance to put the markers back in manually after removing the match cuts, but is there a way to remove the match cuts without losing the markers at the cut points?

    If markers are important I always export them so I can re-import them. Or if you have a copy of the sequence you maybe able to copy and paste them between.

    I would think actual markers would not disappear when you Remove MatchFrame Edits...?

    Another idea would be to move markers to a different (dedicated ?) track.  The marker menu makes this very easy.

    Job ter Burg:

    They do here. I inserted 6 little red vertical pills/markers. Somewhere along the way - I don't remember when or how - a cut was made in the audio track at each location where the markers were inserted. When I delete the match cuts on that audio track (one command removes them all), 5 of the 6 markers disappear. No idea why the 6th does not disappear. It all seems odd.

    I have the same irritation running 2020.12

    Markers certainly used to be maintained whilst performing "remove match frame edits". I suspect it's a bug.
